Covered CA Bus Makes the Rounds

November 10, 2014

This morning our state’s health insurance exchange took off on a road trip. Covered California staff, stakeholders, and supporters loaded up on a custom bus for a nine day trip with stops in 21 cities to get the message out: affordable health care is here. ITUP is excited to participate and will be live tweeting all week (there may even be a couple of selfies in there)!


The bus tour is just in time for open enrollment, which begins on SATURDAY November 15, and goes through February 15. With half as much time to enroll Californians as last year, we’ve got a huge task on our hands.


If you want to help get the word out, join us at one of the bus stops, or follow Covered California on Twitter.
